Fasten Your Seatbelts
Elena (Kasia Smutniak) and Antonio (Francesco Arca) seem not to be made for each other. They are too different in terms of character, life choices, worldview, and the way they relate to others. They are total opposites. However, they are overwhelmed by a mutual attraction they're trying hard to avoid; but to which they succumb to. This dramedy on relationships also gets a very credible performance from Paola Miraccione, who plays the tragic, albeit funny, character Egle.

(gb) wrote: 2/3 of the documentary on reclusive author J.D. Salinger is engaging and fascinating learning about how J.D. grew to become a writer, join the army and his early failures in love. However, the latter third of the film drifts into tabloidish filmmaking with overdramatic music, silly editing tricks and unnecessary graphics that appear to be something out of TruTV or our modern-day "news" outlets, not an actual documentary.

(ru) wrote: Annoying. The lead woman is a crazy eccentric bitch who gets mad over nothing the entire movie. And while waiting for the couple to forgive one another at the end, no such thing occurs. Leaves you feeling very derailed.

(kr) wrote: It's not bad for a movie to be lengthy, but this nearly 4 hrs. long Civil War epic is guilty of many cinematic crimes besides, the most egregious of which is that it is mercilessly boring. Maybe for some Civil War buffs it would be of more value, but I bet that for even them, it would only be so for the battle reenactments. Often, stiff and emotionless acting is referred to as "wooden", and that term could be applied to this film as a whole. The American Civil War is rendered into this epic conflict that was fought for no reason at all really. Slavery is mentioned a few times and declared to be bad, but it's not shown as being very much related to the war at all. In fact, there is no clear explanation for the war. The South secedes because it's damn well their right to, and the North invades their own country because their tyrannical or misguided or whatever, even though the South only believes they're the same country as the North when the script deems it convenient.The filmmakers are obviously Civil War obsessed, but the only benefit to that is the play-by-play battle recreations, but that doesn't count for much if they're filmed so clinically and sanitized that they become mere textbook portrayals. The generals and officers are so very idolized here that they bare no interest at all as they mechanically spout such reverential and sober monologues of tremendous self-importance, not unlike the overall approach to the material by the filmmakers.

(de) wrote: A fun movie with great performances from Meryl Streep, Shirley MacLaine, and Dennis Quaid. Carrie Fisher's writing is great and Mike Nichols does a good job directing it with some great musical moments for Streep
(it) wrote: List of pluses and minuses: + lots of kung fu fighting, at least 9 fights- really naive and corny exploitation of earlier films, especially Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon+ Bruce Lee imitation is well done and the actor has obviously practiced Kung Fu- the dialogue is bad and the plot is a bit difficult to follow because it is too simple. - the humor is unintentional and the film looks silly, also because clips of real Lee have been inserted in some scenes. This was an Kung Fu & Bruce Lee exploitation film from year 1981. I had bought it long time ago on DVD, probably from some bargain sale in a supermarket and had forgotten to watch it.The actor who imitates Lee and lots of fights in a short film makes this film worth seeing because he makes it look like Bruce. Please note: Bruce Lee is NOT acting in this film. Just so you know..
(fr) wrote: A shocking piece of film making. I really wouldn't have believed this was a mockumentary without reading about it before hand. It's pretty radical stuff. An alarming political vision done an alarming and creative way.
